Changes for white card construction induction training

3rd May 19

Training for a Queensland White Card must now be face to face with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

A Queensland white card is recognised in all Australian states and the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory. Queensland also recognises white cards issued from each of these areas.

Concerns about the effectiveness and quality of online training were raised by various stakeholders during the Best Practice Review of Workplace Health and Safety Queensland in 2017. In addition, similar concerns have been long held by work health and safety regulators in other jurisdictions including New South Wales and Victoria.

In response to these ongoing concerns, last year Workplace Health and Safety Queensland advised all registered training organisations that construction induction training would need to be delivered face-to-face from 1 February 2019, with an exception if a Queensland resident lives in a rural area greater than 100 km from an RTO approved to deliver this course.

This arrangement aligns with those in Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, where online delivery of construction induction training is not permitted.

Training for a white card is delivered under a national competency standard, with mutual recognition between states. This change in requirements responds to industry concerns regarding the quality of on-line training which has placed the mutual recognition of Queensland issued white cards at risk.
